Jimmy Kimmel thanked fans and donors for their outpouring of support after making an emotional defense of the pre-ahca health care system following his newborn son's open heart surgery. He also addressed his many detractors quipping, "I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care, it was insensitive. It was offensive and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me."
Kimmel had some sharp words for critics like Newt Gingrich and happily showcased the backlash against Republican congressmen, like Raúl Labrador, »
Kimmel, of course, recently made headlines for his emotional May 1 monologue, in which he detailed his son’s congenital heart condition and made a plea for bipartisan collaboration on health care — a speech that wasn’t well-received by some conservatives.
“I cannot count the number of times I’ve been called an out-of-touch, Hollywood elitist creep this week, »
Upon his return from paternity leave caring for newborn son Billy, Jimmy Kimmel had a lot to say Monday night — and not all of it was nice. Along with calling out critics in the media who had dubbed him “an out of touch Hollywood elitist creep,” the ABC late-night host targeted Newt Gingrich for criticizing his healthcare plea in the wake of his son’s emergency heart surgery. “There are some very sick and sad people out there,” Kimmel said. “Here’s one of them — his name is Newt Gingrich. He’s the former Speaker of the House.” Also Read: »

During his first show back from paternity leave, Jimmy Kimmel fired back at a few politicians (namely, Newt Gingrich) regarding his emotional monologue about his newborn son Billy‘s open heart surgery and the Gop’s recent healthcare repeal.
“One week ago tonight, I made an emotional speech -– that was seen by millions -– and as a result of my powerful words, Republicans in Congress had second thoughts about repeal and replace, they realized that what is right is right -– and I saved health insurance in America!” Kimmel, 49, said during Monday’s opening monologue. “Oh, I didn’t? »

A week after making headlines with an impassioned healthcare argument, invoking his newborn son who recently underwent open-heart surgery, Jimmy Kimmel returned to his show Monday night, providing an update on his family and commenting on the Gop’s recent healthcare vote.
“One week ago tonight, I made an emotional speech -– that was seen by millions -– and as a result of my powerful words, Republicans in Congress had second thoughts about repeal and replace, they realized that what is right is right -– and I saved health insurance in America!
“Oh, I didn’t? They voted against it anyway? I really need to pay more attention to the news,” he said, according to a transcript obtained by Variety.
Kimmel took time to say that his son, Billy, is “doing very well,” eating, sleeping, and getting bigger. He also thanked those who made donations to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles since his speech, but »

Betsy DeVos‘ appointment as education secretary was a controversial one, with the wealthy Gop donor confirmed to the position by the Senate on Tuesday in a 51-50 vote — pushed in her favor by Vice President Mike Pence, who cast the historic, tie-breaking ballot.
But despite outrage from celebrities and Democratic politicians, DeVos is ready to get to work.
The 59-year-old mother of four tweeted a photo of herself in her office late Tuesday night, writing, “Day 1 on the job is done, but we’re only getting started.”
“Now where do I find the pencils?” she added, with a smile face. »

The reaction to Betsy DeVos‘ confirmation as education secretary on Tuesday was fast and mostly furious, with celebrities and Democratic politicians unleashing outrage on social media, and a sprinkling of supporters — including President Donald Trump and Jeb Bush — congratulating DeVos on her narrow win.
Despite a rare, all-night protest by Senate Democrats on Monday night that carried into Tuesday morning, DeVos was confirmed by Senate in a 51-50 vote, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a historic, tie-breaking ballot.
DeVos, a wealthy Gop donor, has been widely criticized for weeks for her multiple conflicts of interest and her apparent lack knowledge of basic education policy. »

Ava DuVernay’s latest film, the Oscar-nominated documentary “13th,” was always meant to be readily available to a large section of movie lovers, thanks to the filmmaker’s free-wheeling production and distribution deal with streaming giant Netflix. Billed as something as a “secret” film, the Netflix deal allowed the “Selma” helmer to make her feature-length look at the American prison system with minimal intrusion over the course of nearly two years.
The documentary, which succinctly explains the links between systematic racism and America’s swelling prison system, was kept mostly under wraps until it was announced as the opening night film at the 2016 New York Film Festival, making it the first documentary to ever earn the distinction.
Just three months after that splashy bow, “13th” is an Oscar nominee for best documentary feature and, yes, is currently streaming on Netflix. But DuVernay and Netflix’s unique partnership has not stopped there, »

Newt Gingrich thinks Madonna should be arrested following her comments at the Women's March on Washington.
While speaking at the march, Madonna said, "Yes I've thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won't change anything." The rest of her speech talked about revolution and love, as she dropped F-bombs and cursed at "detractors that insist this march will never add up to anything." The majority of her speech evoked a powerful response, although the back of the crowd booed when she talked about blowing up the White House. In <a »

“Frontline’s” particular gift, especially when it comes to its political reporting, is to tell a story the audience knows already — but better. Its subjects are some of the most highly scrutinized figures in the world; its events are flashpoints for conversation. Especially when recounting recent history — the kind that takes place after the invention of the smartphone camera and Twitter — there is no lack of raw material, of sheer detail, about what transpired in America following close back-to-back milestones of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and the election of the junior senator from Illinois to the highest office in the land. For most members of the audience, there is also no lack of memory — of the news reports on the day Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, or President Barack Obama’s inauguration, or the shooting deaths of Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown, the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.
On today’s show, Jenelle Riley and I are fresh off the Palm Springs Film Festival, where many of the season’s contenders were honored and Variety held its annual Creative Impact Awards brunch. We also weigh the recent Writers Guild nominations, which featured the surprise inclusion of “Deadpool” in the adapted category. And with Academy voters receiving ballots today, we offer up a few last-minute suggestions for nominations.
Later on (22:21), I’m talking to director Ava DuVernay, whose documentary “13th” is one of the best films of the year. When she first got a call from Netflix asking if she’d be interested in making a documentary, she was eager, but as ever, very indie-minded about it. So things started small, then started to balloon.
For more, listen to the latest episode of “Playback” below. Check back next week for a new episode, »
